FIRST WAVE, Then Jump Up and Down Screaming is a Z-machine version 5 interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 1999 by L. Ross Raszewski (writing as DorianX). It was an entry in the Speed-IF 4 event.

You play as someone acting as a penniless drifter in an aliens-versus-the-world story. Your task: climb to the top of the Eiffel Tower and defeat an evil alien's evil plan!* — * Now with footnotes!

This solution is by David Welbourn.

Thank You to my Patreon supporters

This walkthrough is provided free of charge since I wrote this walkthrough prior to January 2015 when I began my Patreon account, and also because the work it's based on has less than fifteen locations (so I wouldn't have charged for it anyway). I've since reformatted this walkthrough to use my currently preferred style. I hope you enjoy it!

I'm still creating new walkthroughs! Larger ones too! Please visit my Patreon account if you're interested in helping me create more interactive fiction walkthroughs. I appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks again.
